IMGT/PhyloGene [2] is part of IMGT, the international ImMunoGeneTics information system® [3].

IMGT/PhyloGene, created by LIGM (Université Montpellier II, CNRS) is an IMGT tool for sequence analysis, on the Web since 10 February 2002.

IMGT/PhyloGene is an easy way to use tool for phylogenetic analysis of IMGT standardized reference sequences. IMGT/PhyloGene is an on line software package which computes and draws phylogenetic trees for immunoglobulin (IG) and T-cell receptor (TR) V-REGION nucleotide sequences.

IMGT/PhyloGene consists of 5 complementary tools:

IMGT/PhyloGene sequence selection page


IMGT/PhyloGene selected sequences page

IMGT/PhyloGene distance matrix result page

IMGT/PhyloGene tree drawing page

IMGT/PhyloGene tree alignment page

IMGT/PhyloGene implementation and developments

The IMGT/PhyloGene tool was implemented by Olivier Elemento (LIGM, Montpellier, France, Ph.D. thesis, Université Montpellier II 02/12/2002 [1,2])
using Perl and C programs.

Céline Protat added C-DOMAIN sequences into the IMGT/PhyloGene database and adapted the IMGT/PhyloGene tool to deal with them in July 2003.

The IMGT/Phylogene tool has been improved by Fran├žois Ehrenmann in October 2006.
